Yesterday i left it on the edge of a table not remembering that my niece was able to get to it. The lap top fell flat about 2 feet. However when i picked it up started it no damage. However i noticed the in laptop keyboard was shifted up on the right side by cm or two just enough so the far right 6 or 7 buttons get stuck. I unplug it and shut it down. Removed the top bar of plastic (the one covering the start button and lights) and pop the keyboard out and replace it so it is straight. When i restart everything is just fine but for some reason my Ctrl buttons wont work. Both of them on each side of the keyboard.
I have tried
- External Usb keyboard works fine.
- Shutting down and removing the keyboard again to make sure i did not pinch or misplace anything.
- All other buttons tested and are in working order.
The Ctrl Key worked fine for the half hour i used it after the fall before i straighten it.
There was no new software or updates to my knowledge.
It has been my experience that whole parts of the keyboard will go dead or maybe a single key. But why the same key on two different parts of the keyboard?
